Yep.. traction marks from the knurling dragging up your shin.
i alterante between sets, but my heavy set is usually left under / right over
which is weird because im right handed
just feels real weird the other way
I prefer that exact combination myself, and I too am right handed.
But it can rip a girl's pantyhose... just saying... it's a bit of an akward moment.
My last DL max was 441lbs. Brad Gillingham(multi time IPF Heavyweight champ) pulls around 900 using double overhand hook grip. That knowledge is what prompted me to try it.
Read my post on page 2.
Very cool. Thanks. For some reason it didn't even cross my mind to use it on rows as well. I think I'll need to do that to condition my thumbs since I'm only DL'ing once a week. Maybe I'll try it with chinups too.
I switch it up, but in no particular pattern. Always go back to the stronger side for max lifts though.
Badass, i get scrapes, but nothing like that lol
i never switch; the reason being is in wrestling and fighting, i always grip bodylocks with non dominant palm in, and i do all pulls the same way so the specificity strength transfers over as much as possible
Edit: changed my mind about this post
my first 2 reps are always overhand, then the reps after the first two I alternate grips every rep.
I don't know if this is the best brand or the best site to get it from, but you are thinking of liquid chalk:
